It’s just another day at the office when a company comes in for free facials, skin consultations & facial massages. Jealous? Today I’m talking about my part-time gig at Lou & Grey and the new friend I made in a brand you have got to get to know.
Keep reading for the who, what & where of my latest adventure in skincare!
With a wardrobe that consists largely of soft leggings, neutral tunics & cozy sweaters, stopping into Lou & Grey‘s location at the Natick Mall seemed like walking into the sartorial haven I had always designed in my head. A fresh and welcoming aroma filled the air and I knew it was something I could be a part of. Flash forward a few weeks and I’ve really fallen in love with everything from the white floors to the natural lighting and all the maker products, soft tanks and jogger pants in between.
Recently, our store had the chance to welcome a brand to the Lou & Grey family in person and it was such a treat! A small organic cosmetology company out of Newport, Rhode Island, the ladies of Farmaesthetics educated our staff and clients on their natural and sustainable products straight from the farm.
Founder and CEO, Brenda Brock, shared with me her vision for a marriage of green design and beauty. As the daughter of a seventh generation farming family from Texas, she began Farmaesthetics in 1999, selling her product with the idea that quality beauty products should also be good for you.
One of my favorite products in the Farmaesthetics line is the Facial To Go which includes three products you’re going to need to add to your vanity or wherever you store your make-up essentials. Included in the set is; Nourishing Lavender Milk, Fine Herbal Cleanser & Sweet Milk Facial Exfoliate.
The Nourishing Lavender Milk has a soft lavender scent and leaves a light, moisturizing layer. I love the Fine Herbal Cleanser because it also has a clean lavender aroma and cleanses the skin without disrupting the pH balance of the skin. Lastly, the exfoliate is wonderful because it balances, restores and brightens skin through the use of lactic acid, cornmeal and crushed herbs, making me feel good and doing good by my skin with no harsh scrubbing.
